Potty training your toddler can be a traumatic experience for both you and your little angel. Some parents and children seem to breeze through the process and can have their children potty trained within a couple of days while others seem to struggle for months with tantrums galore from both parent and child.
Whether you are toilet training straight away or making the transition from potty training to using the toilet the principle remains the same. Some children might find the prospect of using a toilet very scary, they might think something is going to bite them on the bum (I remember thinking Jaws would get me - yes I'd just watched Jaws 1 and was frightened out of my skin) or they might think they will fall in.
